Hey, does anyone know how to get to the wiring harness inside the fairing. I was drilling a hole to run some wires through for a stereo. I drilled into the harness on the left side of fairing. If I remove the headlight can I get to it from there? Desperate for help. This is on a 1984 Gl1200 Aspencade with digital dash. Since I drilled into the harness now my tail lights do not work and it will barely run.

I drilled into the harness right by the left side vent where the rubber boot connects the outside vent with the inside vent. I don't know how to get to it to fix it.

This is bad news for you Jusme...

The harness feeds in frot the left side to the right side traveling over the headlight bucket.

To pull the harness out, you need to dis-connect all the accessories on the right side of the fairing. (and the left...)

You will have to remove both fairing pockets, dash hood which means the windshield has to come offto get to the accessories plus remove the headlight assembly to unplug the headlight.

You will have to remove the dash/instrument panel once the windshield is off which means you haveto remove mirrors..

Once all pieces are out of the way, the harness should pull out for the repair.

One tip, is to tie some string to the right side of the harness so you can pull it back through when re-installing it.

I wish you all the best in this adventure.

I forgot to mention that the radio & speakers have to come out for ease of removing the harness as well..

Check out the album Assembly of 1985 Goldwing for help and photos of the restore I did on my 85 last year.

You may not find it too helpful but you will see what your bike looks like pulled apart!
